when he got successful he moves all his company over to china, giving chinese people jobs. if steve jobs was born in china he wouldn't even have a garage therefore he wouldn't be able to create the apple computer. so i just think we just don't do enough for the people of this country. and the people who are in position to create jobs and do this do not reinvest in the country. therefore i don't think they should get tax breaks. if you want to give these corporate giants tax breaks then give it to those who want to invest in the country, who want to create jobs here, not overcease, and they think try to think of ways to get their money over there into here lower than say the american businessman paying 35%. guest: i mean, i understand your frustration. i think part of it is that the corporate tax code is a mess. we clearly need to fix it in a way that a lot of the politicians talk about fixing it in a revenue neutral way which doesn't add anything to the deficit discussion. it doesn't help make lowering future deficits any easier. so there are some things we need to change about the

bipartisan budget in a generation. i want to thank steve latourette and jim cooper for their efforts and leadership on this. i also want to thank congressman quigley to co-sponsor and advance this legislation, which is based on the bipartisan simpson-bowles framework. this budget ultimately failed to pass the house, but i remain proud of our bipartisan effort for which the u.s.a. today called us the brave 38. and i believe this type of thoughtful independent leadership that this is the type of leadership that the 10th district deserves. i also believe that the courage and leadership shown by the house to take on the difficult, but necessary position of reining entitlement spending deserves recognition. we know that medicare stands out as a primary driver of our debt in the future. and unfortunately, this future is not so far off. with one of medicare's key programs scheduled to go bankrupt in the next 10 to 12 years, sustaining the status quo means dramatic cuts down the road on the vulnerable americans who need the program the most, crippling increases to the debt and most likely bo

're going to hear steve on the republican line. caller: i agree that all the tax cuts and alba -- you know, unless they reduce spending, it is not going to do anything. we need to create more jobs. if we keep taxing the businesses, they should just reform the tax. if a business hires so many amount of people, they will get a deduction if they hire that amount of people. that would work. i am from buffalo. years ago, they had bethlehem steel. we have the wiper place -- i cannot remember the name, but anyway, the state gave them a tax breaks for hiring people. they start hiring people. you have to have income to spend money. the government needs more taxable people. it is like a bank account. if i give you $1 million and your spending $2 million and only taking in half a million dollars, it is not going to balance. host: do you take deductions? caller: i don't take -- make enough money to take them. every time i try to take them, they say, you did not make enough to take that out. host: what do you think of that? caller: like i said, if they want my money, that is ok. let me put it to you th

. but since then, we know that president obama and steve [indiscernible] spoke yesterday evening. the fact that neither side is leaking what happened on that call, you might say that they are trying to get back on track. they know that if they leak each other's confrontations, that is not good. there are only two participating really in this negotiation. and if they choose not to leak out that information widely, it is a speculation. >> what is the handle and how quickly could be brought -- what is the end goal and how quickly could be brought up for a vote? >> the goal is a down payment or some kind of thing for revenues, which is enough to get us past the fiscal cliff, turn off these automatic spending cuts and make sure that taxes don't go up. and then they would figure out what to do with the upper bracket. and then there would be a mechanism that would guarantee further action next year. if at all possible, they would disagree next year and there would be some sort of trigger or punishment for their lack of action. that sounds relatively simple, i think, putting it all together could
